I think I've always had a weird obsession with handwriting.
All throughout elementary school,
my writing would change according to the "best friend" I had at the time.
I would be obsessed with holding my pencil like they did and writing exactly how they wrote.
Yes, so strange.
But I was usually pretty good at this mimicking act.

Recently I've been inspired by several amazing calligraphers,
both by their fascination with words
and the beauty and freedom in their lettering.
Here are some:

I've been playing with lettering and calligraphy a little bit these days.
I definitely don't have the amazing technical skill as a true calligrapher.
I'm honestly..a wannabe. haha
It's really fun, though.
mulling over letters and words within a phrase,
outputting lyrics you heard or words you read into flat art
It really makes you just sit and think and let the meaning sink in a little bit more.

Anyway, I'll be offering custom calligraphy services next week at Art Walk.
Basically you bring in a favorite quote,
and I'll have paper & pencil ready to create something for you to take home.
Prices will be ranging between $20-25,
depending on the size and wordage
40% of proceeds will be going towards ZOE International,
an organization aiding the rescue and protection of children involved in human trafficking.
Come by that night! Let's be friends!
